A good friend of mine has a 2000 Sable LS, fully loaded, black, pretty slick ride.
Anyway, I went to visit her last week and we get into the car and put some new CDs in the magazine, stick it in, display shows CDE1 and then cuts back out to FM radio. Any subsequent pressing of the CD button results in "NO CD" errors. This figures that it happens right when I'm there; she bought the car after I gave her a positive review of mine. So I feel kind of like a jackass, because the thing pretty much falls apart after she takes delivery of it.
The Ford dealer wants $300 US to fix the changer. You heard me right. Not replace. Fix. The. Same. One. WTF?
I was wondering if anyone had the same problems with theirs, as I know the factory changers are severe PITAs. Any common issues that would likely result in this error?
05 Lincoln LS V8 - black/black, tints, stock (for now).
99 Mercury Sable LS (retired) - green/gray, Duratec, 135000 mi, G4 Taurus wheels, stereo, 11.6" brakes, clear corners, stack of parts in the garage and endless list of repairs.
